Publication Fee

Bentham OPEN is committed to disseminating research and scholarly publications as widely as possible. It supports the principle that 'the results of research that have been publicly funded should be freely accessible in the public domain’ and therefore it encourages researchers to make their research available through Open Access (OA).

Open access publishing is not without costs. To provide open access, Bentham OPEN journals partly defray the expenses of peer review, journal production, and online hosting and archiving from authors and their research sponsors by charging a publication fee for each article they publish. The fees vary by journal.

The publication fee details for each article published in Bentham OPEN in this journal is given below:

  • Letters: The publication fee for each published Letter article submitted is US $750.
  • Research Articles: The publication fee for each published Research article is US $960.
  • Mini-Review Articles: The publication fee for each published Mini-Review article is US $750.
  • Review Articles: The publication fee for each published Review article is US $1,060.

The following special discounts are offered to authors and editorial board members:

  • Authors from developing countries are entitled to 30% discount of their article publication fee submitted to any of the Bentham OPEN journals.
  • Authors from Bentham OPEN Member institutes are entitled to 30% discount of their article publication fee submitted to any of the Bentham OPEN journals.
  • Editorial Board Members and Editors of Bentham OPEN journals are allowed ONE free publication annually. Subsequent submissions from Editorial Board Members are published at 50% discount of the standard publication fee.
  • Subsequent submissions from the Bentham OPEN Authors will receive a discount of US$ 100 on the total publication charges providing their previous submission did not avail any discount off the listed full author open access fee rate.
  • Waiver and additional discount requests are decided on the basis of author’s country of origin and quality of the submitted article. Editors and reviewers have no access to whether authors are able to pay; decisions to publish are only based on meeting the editorial criteria.

The publication fee includes the professional copy editing charges. Once the paper is accepted for publication, the author will receive an electronic invoice via email. Please click here to download the Fee Form.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
